Any clues on locations?? Tram shots could be Blackpool, ditto some seaside photos. Also lots of Birmingham area plates for some of the B+W shots and other coloured pics, and somewhere London-ish for the FX3 taxi with London bus behind and other B+W city centre pics??

I haven't re-watched this docu for a few years (Only done the captures).
You are right about Blackpool & London (others from Kings rd. & Carnaby st. to follow) also pics from the Isle of Wight still to come & a street party from 1966 ...again unknown location!
(I've not got the time to watch it again thoroughly...just for locations. I'm off again in a couple of hours to look after my Mum)

In the second set of thumbnails, the first one might be a Austin Seven Chummy. The bike in the second thumb looks to have a radiator so is likely to be a Scott. The one to the left of the coloured one is one of those circa 10hp boat tail roadsters which several makers did (maybe ABC?), and the one after the coloured thumb might be a pre WW1 Unic taxi.

The green streamlined trams are from Liverpool corporation and were known as the 'green godess'.There was a similar but slightly smaller version known as 'baby grands' The cream coloured one was in the livery of 'liverpools last tram' which last ran in sept 1957 when the whole tram system ended in liverpool.It is preserved in an american transport museum. another which has been fully restored is in the national tram museum in Crich , Derbyshire and a 3rd is under restoration in the Birkenhead transport museum on merseyside. They were all built by liverpool corporation at its edge lane works in the late 30s and early 40s
